Domain

SecA, preprotein cross-linking domain (IPR011130)

Short name: SecA_preprotein_X-link_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The SecA ATPase is involved in the insertion and retraction of preproteins through the plasma membrane. This domain has been found to cross-link to preproteins, thought to indicate a role in preprotein binding. The pre-protein cross-linking domain is comprised of two sub domains that are inserted within the ATPase domain [PMID: 12242434].
